Our Community Partners are a critical component of California Vision 2020’s efforts to engage with communities in designing a better future for all of California. The list of initial partners for this year’s conference includes:
WE ARE THE LARGEST IMMIGRANT YOUTH-LED COMMUNITY IN THE COUNTRY.
When you’re undocumented, you face a lot of discrimination, and that creates a lot of fear. At United We Dream, we transform that fear into finding your voice. We empower people to develop their leadership, their organizing skills, and to develop our own campaigns to fight for justice and dignity for immigrants and all people. This is achieved through immigrant youth-led campaigns at the local, state, and federal level.
The California Solidarity Conference is a resource for our movement.
This weekend-long “unconference” is an opportunity for movement organizers, legislative advocates, policy experts, and issue campaigners to build solidarity across issue areas and discuss how to lay the groundwork for long-term systemic change in California and beyond.
The Revolutionary Love Project envisions a world where love is a public ethic and wellspring for social change.
We produce stories, tools, curricula, conferences, films, TV moments, and mass mobilizations that equip and inspire people to practice the ethic of love. Our current projects focus on racism, nationalism, and hate against Sikh, Muslim, Arab, and South Asian American communities. We are a national initiative based at the University of Southern California, Office of Religious Life.
Chill Sacramento is a vision shared by many: a safe, neutral space where you can discover and explore yourself, find common ground with others, and learn how to participate in creating communities of belonging.
We are realizing this vision through educational activities that focus on sharing perspectives and practices for personal wellness and development, cultural understanding and celebration, volunteer resiliency, social innovation and servant leadership.
Compassionate California holds the vision for a state that is unified in its commitment to effectively preserve healthy, equitable and resilient communities through the methods of cooperation, collaboration and collective impact through compassionate action
insuring a state that focuses on the values of compassionate action and compassionate decision making as a common narrative and a model for the global community.
Courage Campaign fights for a more progressive California and country.
Powered by 1.4 million members, our proven strategy combines digital tools with grassroots community organizing and powerful messaging. We focus on three priorities:
1. Economic Justice
2. Human Rights
3. Corporate and Political Accountability
We work in California -- the largest and most diverse state -- to create models for the country. We are not bound by election cycles. We are a permanent, independent, multi-issue campaign -- winning progressive change today, and building power for the future.
Nearly 75% of our funding comes from thousands of online donors (the average donation is $17). We are also funded by a growing base of major donors, partner organizations, and the support of foundations.
We are named after Ella Baker, a brilliant, black hero of the civil rights movement. Following in her footsteps, we organize with Black, Brown, and low-income people to shift resources away from prisons and punishment, and towards opportunities that make our communities safe, healthy, and strong.
Everyone wants to live in a healthy and strong community that they have the opportunity to help shape.
But prisons, policing, and punishment-based approaches make us less safe, and prevent people of color and low-income communities from influencing policies that impact our lives. Communities face struggling schools, family separation, and a lack of opportunities as a direct result of being disproportionately policed and punished.
We must engage in a process of Truth and Reinvestment: telling the truth about the impact of our country’s long history of racial injustice, building the power of those who have been harmed, and engaging them as leaders to reinvest resources in healing our communities.
The mission of the Rotary World Peace Conference 2020 is to bring together experts with solutions to major issues that are occurring in our personal lives, homes, schools, businesses, and communities, not just in Southern California, but, also, around the world. We are inviting leaders from health care, academia, government, public safety, religions, business, and communities to meet together to share the solutions presented by experts. The format will allow for action plans to be developed such that real and measurable actions can be undertaken when attendees return home. In addition, the conference will showcase learnings and positive change that have occurred in the four years, since the Rotary World Peace Conference 2016.
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival will strategically connect and grow different struggles and lift up and deepen the leadership of those most affected to transform the political, economic and moral structures of our society.
SacIONS, the Sacramento Community Group of the Institute of Noetic Sciences is a non-profit membership organization that is affiliated with and supports the programs of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) in its vision and mission to explore the frontiers of consciousness. SacIONS presents programs that expand the understanding of human possibility by investigating aspects of mind, consciousness, and spirit.
SacIONS holds meetings that may include well-known national and local speakers from organizations that reflect our vision and mission as well as topics presented by members. The meetings are held locally and often include co-presenting with other non-profit organizations.
SacIONS supports and encourages the creation of study groups by its members. These groups bring diversity of perspective and foster connection through exploration, dialogue, and service. Each group is self-organizing and self-directed. Their endeavors can result in a presentation at one of the general meetings, increasing the knowledge and wisdom of all members.
We are bringing together leaders to take the achievements of the Rotary World Peace Conference 2016 to new levels of success by becoming members of the Rotary E-Club of World Peace.
The Conference was a groundbreaking event that brought together experts and leaders and passionate citizens interested in learning about and sharing solutions to the major issues we face today. What is clear is that everyone in attendance wanted this enlightening process to continue.
We are looking for members who see Peace as a day to day process and want to be joined with others with the same enthusiasm and energy to make this happen. We invite you to join us as a member of the new Rotary E-Club.
